Aalu koorma/ Potato kurma

Potato koorma is one of the easy curry that tastes delicious and goes well with any kind of main dish such as rice, paratha or poori. I love having aloo kurma with bagara(Vegetable pulavo). This requires many ingredients but cooks faster. I remember my mother used to make large pieces of potato and cook them. where ever you cook and taste ghar ka khana ghar ka hi hotha hain yaar! we cannot get any where else. So start cooking at home now. You can find most of the home made recipes in my blog. Please bookmark it and do not forget to leave comments on my blog after you prepare this recipe.
